Livermore, CA – The Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce has formed an alliance with a southern California travel firm, CITSLINK, with 39 years of experience in the China tour business for its first trip to mainland China in 2020.

LVCC added travel programs to its portfolio in 2018, offering high-quality international and national travel experiences to Livermore Valley business leaders and to members of the community with established travel operators.

The nine-day trip is an all-inclusive tour that departs Livermore for Beijing in 2020 on April 1 returns on April 9. The cost is $2,099 per person based on double occupancy.

Dawn Argula, Chamber CEO, summed up the trip this way, “Nine days in China, five-star hotel accommodations, the opportunity to see some of the most historic and culturally relevant locations in the country, all-inclusive meals and airfare, deluxe tour buses, English-speaking tour guides, fees for all attractions and any applicable taxes paid, and all for only $2,099. China for less than $250 per day is an amazing value!” According to Argula, due to the alliance with CITSLINK which specializes in working with Chambers of Commerce, the cost of the travel package beats and exceeds industry standards. CITSLINK is well-regarded in the travel industry and by Chambers of Commerce nationwide, including neighboring Chambers of Commerce.

“Leo Liu, president of CITSLINK and a resident of Monterey Park, CA, is a native of China and is well-known and respected in the country,” noted Argula, “The Chinese government is delighted that he brings so many Americans to the country every year and it supports the CITSLINK traveler packages accordingly.”

Tour highlights include stays in the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou. Visits to attractions in the package include Tian An Men Square, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden Palace, Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Lingering Garden, Tiger Hill, Hanshan Temple, Yu Garden, the Bund, the National Embroidery Institute and the Pudong Economic Development Zone.

An orientation meeting with a CITSLINK representative is scheduled for Wednesday September 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce conference room. The meeting is essential for those who have already signed up for the trip or for those that want more information before deciding.
